As of late, it feels as though Nintendo is being sued every other month. Companies file reports that Nintendo has copied this and that, thus leading into disputes. Hillcrest Labs is the latest establishment to be going after Nintendo. The company has sued Nintendo over claims that the big N is utilizing their motion-control creations in the Wii system.

The ITC will be investigating the situation and has the power to block imports of products which violate U.S. patents. Nintendo is additionally facing a lawsuit that could ban the Wii Classic Controller.

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH reveals original DS title wherein a whole world of magic awaits…

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced a magical new title for Nintendo DS entitled Enchanted Folk and the School of Wizardry, due for release Q1 2009 across Europe.

Set in a magic school, the game entails mastering a series of spells and incantations in order to achieve a Magician Licence and become Master Wizard. To this end, the player enrolls in a special school where alongside over 100 fully interactive pupils, they must learn and implement key spells and use them wisely. During the course of a term, however, the player is asked to solve a series of puzzles by mysterious beings that appear once a week throughout the game. Doing so will reward the user with extra items for use in their magic, and contribute towards the player’s advancement.

Central to Enchanted Folk and the School of Wizardry is the versatility of the game and its inhabitants. During the course of the game, players can go shopping or take up hobbies, make friends with anyone in the school, join bands to play music together, and even go on dates. Similarly, the school is rife with gossip related to available mysterious events, romance, stories among the pupils and players can even lend their character to friends in a unique ‘Study Abroad’ scheme wherein they are imported to a friend’s game world for tutoring – and will even discuss their adventures on their return!

With its truly immersive game world and adaptive gameplay – all of which is played in real time courtesy of the DS internal clock – Enchanted Folk and the School of Wizardry is a truly magical experience. Packed with unique items for use in magic, the player faces many long and hard challenges as they strive to attain the coveted five-star rating that will earn the Master Wizard accolade.

We’ve all heard about numerous stories about how desperate some people are in obtaining their Wii consoles, but how about buying two? Archie Lovett, a young boy, logged onto his grandfather’s eBay account and bid close to £200,000 on a Wii console. However, the child already had a Wii of his own. Luckily, the seller was very understanding of the situation and did not put up a fuss. “We have seen the funny side of this, but I have told Archie he cannot do it again,” said his grandfather. “It does show how clever he is.”

The funny thing about this whole story is that wasn’t the first time young Archie took control over his family’s eBay accounts. Time to put some parental controls on all of the computers!
